How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?

When you live in South Florida, having unwanted body hair is never great. After all, who likes shaving their legs, bikini, armpits, back, chest and other areas every time they head to the pool or the beach? You can always wax or take other measures to get rid of your body hair, but that hurts a lot — and you’ll just have to redo it in a couple of weeks.

However, laser hair removal can get rid of your unwanted body hair pretty much permanently. After just a few sessions, any hair that grows back will be light and fine — and all but invisible to the naked eye. While laser hair removal does require a good amount of time, it’s not as expensive as you may think. And with payment plans and packages, you can easily afford to get rid of your unwanted body hair forever!

So How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Cost?

Let’s get down to it: Depending on your hair thickness and color, as well as your skin color and the area you are getting treated, each session will generally cost between $100 and $1,000. Those who will have the least expensive sessions are people with fair skin and dark hair who want a small area lasered, such as their armpits. For the most part, price is based on the time it takes to conduct the treatment.

If you have dark skin and dark hair, or light skin and light hair, and want a bigger area like your legs treated, it will likely cost more. This is because when your skin and hair are close in color, it may take longer to remove the hair since the laser will have a more difficult time differentiating hair from skin. In addition, if you’re getting a larger area treated, the session will take longer. Learn more about the process with these laser hair removal faqs.

Other Factors That Affect Pricing

The laser technology itself also plays a role in pricing. You should visit a laser hair removal clinic that uses True Lasers, the best lasers currently on the market. They actually remove hair permanently, unlike the IPL devices used in 90 percent of other facilities. These lasers should be maintained regularly by the manufacturer on a regular basis.

Additionally, General Practitioner & Family Doctor, Dr. Aragona had this to say about laser hair removal: “See a professional for this treatment, as those who are not trained may leave you with burns and scars on the area you have treated.”

Look for Packages and Lifetime Guarantees

If you really want to save money on laser hair removal, be sure you’re getting a package deal. By buying a package, you have time during each treatment, which in turn saves money (remember, price is based on time). For example, if you are getting your legs lasered, and you also want your bikini line lasered, it will take less time to do them both together than each one individually. Because it takes less time, it will cost you less.

You should also make sure your laser hair removal provider offers a free lifetime guarantee that provides free touch-ups (should they be needed) due to hormonal changes that cause regrowth of hair.

Without a free lifetime guarantee, there’s no incentive to actually finish the process in the number of sessions the provider sells you. That means if you still have hair at the end, you have to buy more sessions to finish — which costs you more money. Be sure to confirm that the laser hair removal clinic’s lifetime guarantee doesn’t cost extra; some will offer a guarantee, but they will charge you an additional fee.
